Hi iam not the sure but my 2002 has a inspection hatch the full length of the back door about have way up.

Use a screw driver to lever it open to give you access to the locking mechanism i hope this helps all the best Donald.

You will have to obtain access from the inside which is quite difficult, by removing a panel.
At the bottom centre edge of the tailgate you will find the latch mechanism and probably discover one of them has become detached (There are 2 rods - one to each side which terminate in a latch, which acts to secure the tailgate closed) Cannot remember whether you pull or push the rods to release the latch.
Good luck
